 News: Russian Fed. - Chechnya, Caucasian and Chechen phobias within Russian society
To a certain extent these phobias are influenced by the fact that Caucasians usually tend to fill lucrative jobs in business, government, etc. and therefore are more “visible.” In addition, they try to get their friends and relatives into new job openings to the detriment of local citizens.
Wide-spread feelings against Caucasians are especially found in Russian provinces where local governors successfully use the Caucasian issue as a lightning rod to divert public discontent from the activities of semi-criminal groups and critical socio-economic conditions.

 Caucasus Foundation
Along with the consonants that occur in all the Caucasian languages, the Abkhazo-Adyghian languages are characterized by different sets of labialized consonants (formed by rounding the lips), strong (hard or tense) consonants, half-hushing consonants, and velarized consonants (formed with the back of the tongue approaching the soft palate).
The consonant systems of the Nakh languages are relatively simple, coinciding, on the whole, with those of the South Caucasian languages (apart from a number of pharyngeal consonants characteristic of all the Nakh languages and a lateral sound peculiar to Bats).
All the Caucasian languages have a series of stops of three types--voiced, voiceless aspirated, and glottalized (i.e., pronounced, respectively, with vibrating vocal cords; with vocal cords not vibrating but with an accompanying audible puff of breath; and with accompanying closure of the glottis [space between the vocal cords]).

 Club for Caucasians stirs up Oakley / High school student surprised her idea turned into 'big deal'
When freshman Lisa McClelland first proposed a Caucasian Club at Freedom High School in Oakley, she had no inkling of the stir she would cause in the quiet little town on the eastern fringe of Contra Costa County.
Three weeks after she began circulating a petition, signed on sheets of binder paper by classmates and town residents, Lisa's campaign has drawn national media attention that has led to a mixed community reaction.
The possibility of a Caucasian Club -- with a tentative membership of 20 people, most of them Lisa's friends -- was the talk of the campus this week, eclipsing discussion of Friday's homecoming football game against San Ramon Valley High School or this weekend's community Almond Festival.
